Making Breakfast Count – pt2
No Time for Breakfast?
How do you make time in the morning for a well rounded breakfast when you have to get your kids up, get yourself ready for work, and get everyone out the door on time? Sounds like it may be an impossible task, but there are many ways to offset this problem. Purchasing foods that can be eaten on the go, getting up an extra 15 minutes earlier in the morning, and planning ahead are a few ways to integrate breakfast intro your morning routine.
Cereal bars, yogurts, muffins are all perfect for eating in the car, on the bus, or as you walk to school or work. If eating on your way to you daily responsibilities is not an option for you, getting up an extra 15 minutes early in the morning can ensure you have time to eat a bowl of cereal, make scrambled eggs, or prepare and eat almost any other breakfast food before heading out. Lastly, just as you would make your lunch for the next day or set aside your clothes for work or school, planning breakfast the night before can really help save precious time. For example, it’s as simple as setting out the box of cereal with the bowls and spoons the night before, which not only gives you one less thing to take care of in the morning, but it also serves as a reminder to eat breakfast.
The great thing about many breakfast foods, as compared to foods typically for lunch or dinner, is most are fortified with vitamins and minerals and are quick and easy to make. While we have said breakfast is the most important meal, simply eating a doughnut or having a cup of coffee is not going to be beneficial.
